A big thank you to all who came to Llanelli LGBT Day on Saturday 5th August 2017.

Sadly there was a lack of local organisations who attended to show support for the community but it was great to see so many of you there.

Coming from far and wide, on your own or as a couple. Who’d have thought that something like this would be happening in Llanelli.

Even the speeches were great, but all saying that even in the 21st century a lot needs to be done.

However, by all of us coming together and showing solidarity, we can make a change for the better!

Thanks to: our sponsors Carmarthenshire County Council, West Wales Trade Sales and Castell Howell Frozen Foods.

Thanks for speeches: Lyn from Asda Llanelli, Nia Griffith MP, Jeremy Miles AM, Cllr Sean Rees Plaid Cymru, Cllr Sian Caiach chair Llanelli Rural and Cllr Jeff Edmunds Town Mayor.

Thanks to acts; The Fighting Fifth Husky, Corin Casini, Richard for funky dancing and The Otherside. All of them performing for free!

Thanks to Cakes by Helzbach and Slipnslide Events.

Thanks to Cariad for providing the First Aid cover on the day.

A big thanks to all of our volunteers who have worked so hard to make the event a success!

A big thank you to all of you and we look forward to seeing you on Saturday 4th August 2018!

Can YOU Help?

… we have a small favour to ask. More people are reading the West Wales Chronicle than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. And unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. The West Wales Chronicle’s independent, investigative journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too.

If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps fund it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as £1, you can support the Chronicle – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
